Those of you how have followed the blog for years know that Kevin Goudreau, a neo-Nazi active now for more than 30 years, has been covered on these pages mostly in the spirit of how he deserves to be treated.
As a joke whom even other right wing extremists who know him reject.

This one I kept separate as because receiving any advice from Kevin Goudreau about health matters is so deliciously ironic and hilarious.
But though he is a joke, Goudreau still represents a danger of sorts that needs to be taken seriously.

- Served by Peterborough Police, Peace Bond Sought Against Kevin Goudreau
- The Goudreau is Aggrieved
- Kevin Goudreau Threatens to Kill ARC Collective Members. Reactions Range From Yawning to Uproarious Laughter
- Cancelled WCAI Toronto Rally Unmitigated Disaster For Canadian Far-Right

Goudreau in fact has historically directed some of his most venomous hatred towards the LGBTQ community:
